Q: How can I add vertical text to a PDF page?

A: There is no way using the content editing tool at the moment to apply a rotation to a PDF text object using PDF Studio.

However, here is an easy trick to add vertical text to a page using the text box annotation:



  • Add a text box annotation.
  • Make the text box narrow so as you type letters they are added down.
  • Add a space character to go to the next line.
  • Set the border width to zero.
  • Set  the horizontal alignment to be centered.
  • If needed, flatten the text box annotation so the text is added to the content of the PDF document.
